REM is a full length contemporary piece that questions the notions and players in civil war conflict and international aid.
In honor of the M.O.V.E. for Liberia effort Javanna Productions is presenting 'REM', a collaborative choreography project featuring dancers from Broadway Dance Center.
Through a digital media and movement performance, MOVERS directed by the company's leading choreographers will become the "good" and "bad" creatures under the American's bed. Members of the organization are in discussion about American interest in foreign conflict and are gearing their studies specifically towards the American interest in the Liberian civil war. Members have concluded that American knowledge of distant conflicts are often dream like hence the title, 'REM' (Rapid Eye Movement). America often stands in the middle of the conflict attempting to manage the issue with meager knowledge, sometimes providing adequate aid in distressed regions and other times creating more of a disruption. Through fictional story telling, MOVERS will question American interest in distant civil war conflicts and challenge the idea of the "good guy" vs. the "bad guy" in a war zone.
